Hello, I am Dr. Trotter. I grew up in Long Island. My father was a dentist and we worked together for 10 years and I really got to see the value that he created in people's lives and how they really appreciated what he did for them. I had a new appreciation for him as a father and as a person, and I got a strong feeling about the profession and that's really what drew me into it. I was lucky enough to learn from him by spending 10 years with him in practice and changing the practice, introducing him to all the technology that we had available to us that he didn't really have much exposure to.
I am accredited with the International Congress of Implantologists. I'm actually a Fellow with ICOI. In addition to being a fellow with ICOI, I'm also a mentor with the CEREC training program, and we do help other dentists basically institute and implement that technology in their practices.
I like to work with my hands, I like to work with computers and all that, but I also like to work with people. So I make it really important to myself and to also my staff to understand that there's a human being attached to those teeth. So we try to get a feel for them as an individual.
One of the first things we do is that we ask questions about themselves. What are their desires? How do they feel about themselves in terms of their smile? What are their previous experiences? What do they like to do for fun? I like to develop that relationship with the patient.
